Extraordinary! Just got home from our Bronx Zoo field trip and what a day it was!
Attending were: Menagerie, BrianNY, QTOFFER, Bubblyblue, myself and my wife.
We met at a diner for breakfast and proceeded to the Zoo. Amazing, the weather turned out to be gorgeous. We had thought that Ophelia may have made an appearance but she didn't.
Most of us had not been to the Zoo in years and we marveled at the New exhibits. We spent a total of 5 1/2 hours touring the exhibits, fascinated by various species and their habitats. When we went through the Congo/Africa exhibit, we were once again amazed. Within the gorilla exhibit was a huge pond. Inside the pond were the biggest red tail sharks, irredescent sharks, huge gouramies and tinfoil barbs. 8O
In another exhibit, huge African cichlids were on display. As well as another tank, complete with a mangroove tree inside which held several species of tetras, sharks and turtles (yes, turtles).
We ended the evening with dinner and polite conversation. In all, the day was fabulous and we can't wait to do another trip!
*Yours truly did make one unpardonable error. Forgot to charge the batteries for the digital camera. Not to fret, QTOFFER did remember to bring his. Pics will follow soon.
